Remembering the Victims

We often put the murderer as the most important story. He clearly was deranged and needed help. His story while it was probably possible to avert, is water under the bridge, and celebrating his life by publishing his last words and making him anything other than being deranged and sick, is despicable.

I'd much rather remember, as the New York Times has, the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre. By many accounts, they were good people. The testimony of their life would have to be how they lived. What they have already paid for in blood, moving forward, we must, as much as we can, ensure a tragedy like this never happens again, anywhere. That should be of paramount concern to everyone.

My condolences to their family and friends.
